Chart of the Future

Maximizing Mariner Effectiveness Through Fusion of Marine and Visualization Technologies.

The goal of the Chart of the Future Project is to investigate ways to provide more effective information to mariners in order to maximize safety and efficiency of navigation.

This project, which is among the research conducted by the CCOM/JHC Data Visualization Research Lab, aims to develop proof of concept prototypes to test new ideas and utilize new technologies. Prototypes are evaluated either through interviews with potential users or by conducting more formal human factors studies.
